Robbie had so much fun on March 16th talking to people on the mountain that we sent him out again a few days later. It may have had something to do with all the free food he was offered. in any case, he talked to a family on Spring Break, a future pond skimming contestant, and the owner of an impressive smorgasbord. Spring in Vail usually means soft snow, warm sun and on mountain picnics and this is no exception!
“Vail Unscripted” got its start one day when we gave our part-time Production Assistant Robbie a camera and asked him to spend some time on the mountain finding and talking people. After a day full of chairlift and gondola rides with strangers, without a script, uniform, or any sort of rewards to hand out, Robbie came back with some hilarious and sometimes enlightening conversations with people around Vail. The videos were so fun that we had to turn them into an ongoing series. Next time you’re in Vail, keep an eye out for Robbie and you may just end up on the next episode!
